bobobolinskii: stpickrell: I still think Jerry Brown, or a 70+ Hispanic with a distinguished career and no higher ambitions, is the way to go.

In that case i nominate Danny Trejo for the job

As much fun as it would be to have Senator Machete, let's not have any more pure celebrities in politics.

Al Franken got a degree in polisci before getting into comedy.

Don't know what state she lives in, but I think Eva Longoria would be okay to run for office.

JDAT: How hard can it be to find a Guatemalan trans midget with Parkinson's in CA?

There's at least two of those in LA's Skid Row.

Gavin Newsome, even if he ends up picking a good candidate, will do it in such a blundering and ham fisted way.

Perhaps the best is yet to come for California?

I really like the blurred background with the white corona balls.

Is that a revival super group made up of former L.A. Guns and Skid Row band members?

Never mind the person who had the seat earned it, it's gotta be another "racial female" to replace her.
Bullshiat. Whaddayawant? Another Martha McSally?

GrinzGrimly: sinner4ever: We all know the only color that matters is green.

It seems the only color that actually matters is white, as in "We don't care what color they are as long as they aren't white."  This isn't promotion of a particular race, just discrimination against one in particular.

A person's skin color should not prevent them from getting a job if they are the best qualified; that didn't used to be controversial.

One of the qualifications of a Senator is the perspective and lived experience that they bring to policy-making.
